HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF (New Orleans)
They may hail from New Orleans, but Alynda and company have been making waves all over the world this year. MOJO Magazine called them, "Heartbreaking and poignant," and gave them a spot on their George Harrison tribute album. The Times (London) named their album one of ten best of 2011. Don't miss this homecoming show for Foburg.

IL ABANICO (Bogota, Colombia)
an Indie/Experimental band created in 2010 by Nicolás Losada (guitar) and Juliana Ronderos (Voice). They expose their personalities with innovative melodies, an upbeat rhythm section and unorthodox guitars. Originally from Bogotá, Colombia, this duo spent fall of 2010 composing what would become their first work "Crossing Colors" (February 2011). A 5 songs EP, recorded in well renowned Studio G (temporal studio for the Black Keys) in Brooklyn, NY.
They are an official selection of SXSW, but you can see them in NOLA before they conquer the world. If you saw them at The Saint a few months ago, you will not want to miss this show.
